hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Shared by Dickinsonbeer. Hazy deep orange, almost amber in color with a medium off white head. Aroma- is a good amount of fresh grapefruit as well as light flowery notes, with some molasses hanging around in the back. Taste seems more like an ASA, and bordering on a barleywine rather than an IIPA. Body gets a bit syrupy and the hops are there in the form of citrus, but they get lost in the malt backbone somewhat. Bitterness builds up and becomes moderate to heavy in the finish. Thanks Paul.

HenrikSoegaard (11131) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Creamy white excellent mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Fantastic powerfull hopy aroma, still malty notes is present. Heavy bitter flavor. More citrus notes than perfumed flowers taht you normally finds in DIPA. Very creamy palate. this beer scores so high because the malt is distinct and the hopps fabulous.

Ballast Point Dorado is an indian storytelling which overrules most. This beer questions the charecter 5.0. Why not?

Bottle. Slightly hazy with a small white head. Powerful hoppy aroma and even more powerful hoppy taste with rich malty flavours. Well balanced.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 13, 2009 Upon opening, the citrusy smells really came out. After an aggressive pour they intensified. First taste was pine and malt - this one has a very robust malt backbone, unlike the standard "West Coast IPA." Lingering bitter aftertaste that is mild, but staying. ADDITIONAL NOTES (5/17): As this brew gets older, the hops REALLY fade, to the point where the malt totally takes over. It becomes kind of a "Barleywine Light". THIRD ANALYSIS: This is amazing fresh! Went through a growler of this, and yes, its a beautiful skunky fresh cannabis tasting beer!

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle. Most unique IIPA nose. Not just the standard pine and caramel. Granted, they are there, but there’s also plenty of dry wood, cilantro, mint and white grape skin. Quite pleasant. Pours a thick gold with a nice sized white head leaving excellent lacing. Nicely balanced flavor profile... if an IIPA can be balanced at all. Pine resin initially, dry and spicy wood tannin, toasted caramel, mint. Very unique. Medium to full bodied. Sweet but never cloying. Interesting representation of the style for sure.

Bottle at ØLbaren. Clear amber - white head. Flowery, resin, grassy, grape, high high hoppy, roasted, knækbrød, amber malts, high cabbage. High resin bitter finish.
